Look at that gorgeous cover for the fourth book in The Wolves of Kanta series!
I’m absolutely in love with this amazing cover by Harvest Moon Designs! The colors just really make this piece stand out. I love the branches above Mercy’s head and how determined she looks. The trees in the background with the crows give it a mysterious vibe. The gun in Mercy’s hand really hints at the danger in this book too.
This entry in the Wolves of Kanta series has some major thriller vibes simply because she’s been captured. It’s something Mercy has evaded for years but eventually her luck runs out.
I’m so in love with how this series is going and I can’t wait to get this book out into the world. I’m working on finishing up edits and prepping for ARC readers now. This book hits bookshelves on December 20th!
The Fury of Kanta
It didn’t matter that Mercy found a cure for lycanthropy or fended off bloodthirsty werewolves in Crowsmirth. Oscar the hunter still found her. Finding herself in a place she never wanted to return to again, her captor insists she play a twisted game.
Oscar wants to be the father she never had, and Mercy his doting daughter. Refusal is not an option. Plotting to escape while playing along is dangerous, but Mercy is determined to get home.
She must unravel the mystery of her parents’ past and conceal her growing fury if she hopes to see her friends again.
I’m so thrilled to share the cover for third book in The Wolves of Kanta series!
It’s amazing to me how quickly this series is getting out into the world! Book 3 is quite gory, especially compared to the first two books in the series, but that’s to be expected when you’re writing in a post-apocalyptic world with so many werewolves. I had a lot of fun with continuing Mercy’s journey as she works to spread her partial cure to lycanthropy to as many werewolves as possible. She has big plans ahead, but she’s nowhere near ready for the obstacles she will have to overcome.
Between gruesome werewolves and blood-thirsty werewolf hunters, Mercy may have bitten off more than she can handle.
The Hunters of Kanta
The Wolves of Kanta Book 3
Mercy is on a mission.
She plans to administer her partial cure to as many werewolves as she can find, giving them a new chance at life. That means leaving Kanta and convincing werewolves of her good intentions. But finding their campsites during the day isn’t easy.
Hot on the heels of a large camp somewhere near Crowsmirth, Mercy and Andrei get side-tracked by an unexpected rescue mission. They soon learn that there are far more werewolves in those woods than they expected. They’re outnumbered, completely unprepared for the sheer numbers against them, and worse yet, running out of daylight.
Desperate to get out of the forest before night falls and the slaughter begins, they run straight into a team of highly organized werewolf hunters.
Surrounded by vicious killers and countless werewolves, can Mercy and her friends survive the long night in Crowsmirth?
Believe it or not we are only two days away from the release of my YA Horror novel, The Seeking! This is my first full-length horror novel I’ve ever had published and I’m super excited by the early reviews coming in for it.
Today you can read the first 2 chapters of The Seeking posted up on the Parliament House website. And even in those first two chapters, things get pretty dark. So make sure you’re in a well lit room before you dive in!

After reading his fantastic novella, Eight Minutes, Thirty-Two Seconds, I was eager to hop into more of Peter Salomon’s work! Fortunately he’s got a few other books that he’s written, and this book, Henry Franks, was his first!
Henry Franks is a novel about a teenage boy with scars that are always itching and a terrible case of amnesia. He doesn’t remember anything that happened before the accident, and he suffers from not recognizing his own name or his own father. As Henry slowly unfurls out of his shell around his talkative neighbor, Justine, the newspapers are full of murder reports happening all across the quiet island of St. Simons island.
So first off, having grown up in Georgia myself, I love that this happens in a known Georgia location during specific years and during a very specific weather pattern. I think it’s incredible the amount of work and research it takes to create a world within that space, but Peter does a splendid job with it.
Another piece I want to include, and perhaps the part that made this book glow for me, is the clear knowledge of cognitive science and the effects of head trauma. People forgetting who relatives are and sometimes, more importantly, not having the same feelings of warmth as they used to are known side effects of that trauma. Read up on Capgras syndrome for more information on this very real phenomena.
What makes life worse for Henry is that his father seems untrustworthy. And you’re not sure if it is a case of head trauma or if he really is acting suspiciously. So you’re not sure if Henry’s lack of emotion for his father is truly from head trauma and amnesia, or if his father isn’t who he says he is.
Anyway, you get the idea of how tangled this story is and how much fun it is to unravel the mystery! I honestly love that about Peter’s books. The ending absolutely threw me for a loop too!
I am looking forward to getting to read more of Peter’s work!
What I consider a 5-star book:
Is it a fun read? I turned each page with growing concern, eager to unravel the mystery at hand, so yes, definitely a fun read!
Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely! I loved the twists and turns this book took, and the horrific encounters they had.
Does it stick with you? Definitely! It’s a storyline that you’ll find creeping into your mind again and again.
I know, I know, I’ve been dancing around this announcement quite a bit on my Instagram stories. I can’t help it though, it’s not everyday you get to announce that a new book is going to be published!
If you’ve been following along, you probably already know that I submitted Book 2 of the Stolen series (Broken) last month. I was so thrilled to get it in with time to spare on a deadline I had already needed to push back. This book though has nothing to do with the Stolen series, or even with the She-Wolf series I’ve talked about some.
The Seeking is a brand new YA Horror novel, and it’s coming soon from Parliament House Press!
This novel mixes quite a few things that I love: autumn, a dystopian society, monsters, love, and family. I am so excited that you’ll be able to experience it soon and that you’ll get to discover the secrets of the Gray People.

Each Seeking, the magic that protects the town of Carra must be renewed, which means the children of the Exalted Family must go into hiding. Whether it be through disguise or bribe, through trusted friends or perfect hiding places, every child of the Priest family must avoid capture for the full day.
When things go wrong with the renewal, it’s up to seventeen-year-old Dahlia, the middle child of the Priest family, and her girlfriend, Bisa, to escape Carra and find the magical beings responsible for the protection. They must learn who would require such a cruel game to be played every year and if the protection of the Gray People is really worth such a deadly cost. What they will discover is far worse.
